    It seems as though this "abuse" is earning upwards of 50k pristege/hr, and R8's are starting to flow...

    (I do remember in wow when the top arena teams were "Abusing" for Glad... Which was shut down by the GM's)

    Exploit or Legal use of game mechanics?

    /discuss
    If you mean the one posted in the forums before, it is definitely an exploit. Refrain from posting it and just email it to support instead.

    Lol, they're still doing this after hotfix, just stealthed up to a pvp rift in IPP and about 10 defiants/10guardans trading stones. People actually defending this in 50 chat, so pathetic.

    Yeah, its pathetic.
    If you tell them to stop because GM's are looking into it because its "cheating" they just insult you right away.

    The sadest part about this, what little "balance" and "consistency" the entire RIFT community shared while doing this grind, has been changed. No longer are we all on equal footing for gains...

    It seems the shear ammount of people doing this will be very hard, if not impossiable to track down and punish accordingly.

    I can promise if guilds were bugging all of HK boss's to clear it in 3-4hours, it would have been hotfixed instantly and rolled back. Not this, we need time to investagate....

    As I said before, much like those that afk'd or played without participating in warfronts during headstart and the first real month nothing is going to happen to these people. Remember when people were hitting 50 within a week because of an exploit with summoned mobs? Did anything happen to them or was there a hotfix followed by nothing?

    TW is excellent with lip service, it's the follow through that tends to be lacking.

    This would take a trion programmer about 10 minutes to develope a program to scan log files and pull names of people who exploited the system by ******ed favor gains and rollback or suspend whatever they want to do. It is hardly impossible, they have data for everything.

    Anyone who was playing tf2 during the hatpocolypse knows what im talkin about.

    Even if they could, why would they? No one is going to quit over this. People would definitely quit for being rolled back. I almost wish I'd been a part of it, skipping the grind to rank 8 and just being able to play the 50s BGs like I did in the ones I leveled in to 50 in (i.e. without having to grind for gear) might have gotten me to re-sub.

    As it is, no chance of that until they separate the queues by rank or somehow reduce the gear disparity between level 50s of different ranks in WFs.

    I hope they do quit. I dont want to play with people who exploit to get ahead, so screw them and let them quit and have the real pvp'ers stay.

    I'm pretty sure alot of people will quit if Trion doesn't deal properly with major exploits like this.

    They'll deal with it as they have before. There will be a hotfix for the actual exploit followed by a post on the forums saying they are reviewing players during this time and those found guilty blah blah blah then nothing actually happens to anyone. They post what you want to hear on the boards while nothing actually occurs in game. That way those players that didn't take advantage of the exploit aren't butthurt nor are those that did.

    Can't believe everything you read on the internet.
